Euclid Hall  Upper West Side(Photo credit: Vintage Motoring.blogspot.com) 

1906 Rolls Royce 30hp in front of Euclid Hall on Upper West Side, of Manhattan on Broadway between W 85th and W 86th Streets. Built in 1903 to take advantage of the new subway, which was built in 1904, the building had red brickwork with iron details. The first tenents were prosperous professional types and many families had live-in-servents.

By the 1930's the neighborhood had changed and was a bit run down, the building was converted to single rooms as The Euclid Hall Hotel. Today the 273 SRO (single room occupancy) units provides permanent housing for persons with very low incomes, persons with experiences of homelessness, and pre-existing tenants.

Mitchell, Thanks you for the photos. I don't see any Rolls Royce parked there today. But it's good to know there are people who have a roof over their head today.

Bob, None parked there but I wouldn't mind strolling down Broadway in a 1906 Rolls today.

Thanks for stopping by.

There is something so special about vintage photos, that capture that moment in time so very long ago!  And, then the comparison in today's color photographed world. Wonderful stuff!

Pat, I'm intrigued by the Rolls and who's in it. I'd love to know who they were.
